Needed: Good photos/video of the Moxie Christening
« on: August 07, 2022, 04:59:22 PM »
If anyone has a good photo or two, or video of the Moxie Christening to celebrate the Mountain Extension opening, I would greatly appreciate it.  I plan to give a presentation photo and info to my friends at the Catawissa Bottling Company with permission to use it in their advertising.

I was surprised by the number of inquiries I got for cases of soda next time I'm up so I will make every effort to have it available during FWW with some for "the Frig" and additional cases for purchase - at cost.

Your assistance with the photo is greatly appreciated:     Sincerely,   The Moxie Bootlegger

I was out of position for the christening, as I didn't know it was happening until it did.  I got a picture of Steve on the pilot of 9, but I think people got in the way of the action.

John I'm glad you're going to start bringing cases with you. The 7 cases that I brought up in April (temporarily) killed my Jeep and I'm not keen to relive the experience anytime soon.

John check in with Connor Maher. He was front and center for the smashing of the bottle, so you might get something out of him.

Sadly, those of us not on FB cannot view it.

I got "content not available right now". Maybe it's for "friends" only...

Apparently Conner's video is set to be viewed by his "friends" only.

It's set to public now, so anybody should be able to see it. Even if you don't have FB, give it a try, it might work.
